Over the next several postings, I will share some of my experiences from my travels in Ladakh in 2008. I do not intend to write a travel blog with this subject, but I do intend to share some of the photographs that I think are worthy of showing and sharing.
This image is of the road between the Capital city of Leh and the Nubra Valley. Supposedly, this is the highest motorable road in the world (advertised at 18,000+’). Whether it is or not, it is an amazing trip. In the far distance there is a bit of the Karakoram Range which has some peaks over 25,000′. In between, is the Nubra Valley which is on the old Silk Road. Geographically, this area is the northernmost province of India, and the Nubra Valley is very near Pakistan.
